Babies of all species, human or animal, learn and develop through play.  Bear cubs are no exception.  Here is a short video of our two little cubbies playing in their carrier.  Already, after only a week and a half at ABR, they are gaining strength in their legs.  They are still very unsteady, but through play with each other and nutritious food, they will continue to become stronger.

As you watch, notice how they swat and poke at each other – a normal part of play.  They don’t hurt each other, but now think of how that would feel to YOU, with your thin human skin.  For all the bear aficianados who think it would be so great to hold/play with a bear cub – you might want to rethink that wish.
